On the wiktionary page for дар (gift), in some of the definitions, the abbreviations "мн." and "ч." appear, what do they mean?

1 Answer 1


"мн.ч." is just the abbreviation for "множественное число" (the plural form).

You'll also see "ед.ч" there, which stands for "единственное число" (the singular form).

  • @dasblinkenlight: “singular/plural number”, as per Anixx’s edit, are valid terminology, as it relates to a grammatical category of number.
